    I pressure cook gizzards, to me they are a delicacy, sometimes I pickle them.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    That's why I won't eat them. Physiologically, livers are also disgusting but I got addicted before I took Anatomy. :(

    I guess it's a question of when,where and how we grew up.You lived on a ranch and I assume that you grew up on one also ?I was a country/city kid and we lived through some hard times.We ate what ever was put in front of us.We would moan and groan but if you were hungry you ate or you starved .

    The weekly menu was always the same,plenty of milk,home made mac and cheese, cheese, tuna, burgers for sandwiches,hot dogs and beans,fried liver,Kidneys and gravy on toast,fish on Friday,chicken on Sunday.
    We four were always hungry and always had plenty to eat .I hated liver and Kidneys growing up but in my later years have reacquired a taste for grilled calves liver and kidneys.

    I am not one for internal organs as food, but there is something to be said for fried chicken livers wrapped in bacon.
    Good stuff there!:D

    We did not raise cattle although we ate a lot of beef. Chickens, rabbits, game, and hogs made frequent appearances along with trout. I was like 23 before I understood that "normal" people didn't eat trout for breakfast several times a week.

    In poverty times (and we had our share because the folks wouldn't take food stamps), we ate pancakes and Karo syrup. I never eat pancakes now. I'd rather go hungry for a day or two than eat pancakes - the association with grinding times is that intense. :(
